Heavy clay industry’s experts meet at Lake Garda

“Meeting the future of Sacmi Heavy Clay”

Under this headline, Sacmi organized an international symposium for the heavy clay industry in Garda (Italy) on 28 September. In addition to the conference programme, a tour of the new Cosmec plant in Verona had been arranged. At the same time, the event offered international experts the opportunity to get together and analyse trends on the construction market, especially against the background of the new scenarios and chances resulting from the modest yet steady recovery.

The event, entitled “Meeting the Future“, was attended by over a hundred manufacturers and experts from the brick and tile industry in addition to existing and potential customers of Sacmi-Cosmec. The conference was characterized by both realism and the manufacturers’ confidence in being able to meet the new challenges of Industry 4.0.
